First my results after 5 days of use:
Recovery rate: increased by 100%. I am half as sore for half as long following a workout. I have about 10 yrs experience in the gym and so am quite familiar with my normal abilities in this regard.
Strength: growing fast! Compare workouts:
24/04/00 Incline DB Curl - 45lb x 4, 40x7, 40x5,35x5,30x7
25/04/00 Pec Dec - 185x7, 185x7, 185x5
Next workout (Androsol started on 29/04/00):
01/05/00 Incline DB Curl - 45x6, 45x5, 40x7, 40x6, 35x8
03/05/00 Pec Dec - 195x9, 205x5, 195x8, 195x6
So I’m lifting heavier for more reps and more sets. Notice that the improvement on my chest exercise is significantly greater than on my arm exercise. I attribute this to being on Androsol for 5 days vs 3 days respectively.
Good job TC, Tim, Brock, et.al. !
Now for a couple of questions (and thanks for sticking with me).
Q1. Why is the maximum # of applications per day set to two? My thinking is this:
If you apply 70 sprays 2tid that is the same as 35 sprays 4tid. Four applications per day would result in a more consistent level of andro and test in the blood. It would also tax the enzyme system less at a single time. I am assuming that the release of andro is highest immediately after application. So what is wrong with this line of reasoning?
Q2. DMSO. Is it contraindicated with Androsol? I am thinking of applying it with Androsol in this fashion: Right before a workout spray some Androsol (5-10 sprays) on the target muscle for the workout and then apply some DMSO (after the isopropyl alcohol has evaporated) to enhance the rate and quantity of absorption. I know that DMSO works by destroying some of the skins protective layers. Does DMSO interact with (destroy) 4-AD?
Thanks for so freely sharing your knowledge and experience,
